New name sign for SignON

A name sign is given by deaf people to a person, organisation, company, event, brand or place. Rather than completely fingerspelling a name, one compact sign is used, which is part of deaf culture.

Over the past months, SignON was given three different name signs by deaf people in Europe. On 24 May we presented these three options on our social media channels and asked our followers to vote for their favourite sign. We then picked a winner. Are you curious? Check the video below and find out which name sign was chosen!

The SignON project now having a name sign means that it is being talked about within the deaf communities. We are delighted about this because we attach great importance to the co-creation process with our target groups within our project.
